If you are on the Microsoft upgrade-mill, expect that your document formats will eventually be terminated. Office 2003 SP3 starts that trend. Many older formats are being disabled. This is another reason why ODF is so important.

After you install Office 2003 SP3, some Microsoft Office Excel 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003, Microsoft Office Word 2003, and Corel Draw (.cdr) file formats are blocked. By default, these file formats are blocked because they are less secure. They may pose a risk to you.


And to enable them, there is a convoluted process of registry edits.
